I have never been in trouble in my life except traffic tickets. Then I made a really stupid mistake and had my kid in the car. It didn't look good. I was looking at becoming a felon and looking like a really bad mom. I thankfully found Richard McConathy. It took close to a year but he was able to convince the DA to drop my case down and now I'm eligible to have it sealed. I now have my future back. Great office staff and very hands on with the clients needs. Once again a big thanks to the whole office.

DWI Case Dissmised
Richard saved my life from the path of destruction it was on. My twenties was full of many hazy memories and mistakes. I should be in prison for my selfishness, but because of one man and my sweet Gama I doing life right. So many other lawyers would have quit on me, but Richard kept going. He kept me out of prison and got me into treatment and kept it where I could seal my record. I'm now married to the love of my life with two of the most precious little girls a man could wish for. I just got my master plumber standing and own my own business. This wouldn't be happening If one man, Richard McConathy, didn't save me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart
